pours a dark copper red with a nice little bubbly off white head aroma is light caramel malt and some euro hops flavor is the same as aroma but stronger and a little dry hop bite. the dry hops stick around a bit in the aftertaste and is real sessionable. probably the best irish red I have had to date, and yes expensive, but I would drink a few on st. pattys day.

I had high hopes for this beer. I poured it, nice color with quickly disappearing off white head. Watery which would explain the 4.4% ABV. Slight taste of red goes down smooth. Wouldnt be a bad daily drinker, but at $3.99 a 12 oz, I doubt ill be making the purchase again. Best part about this beer was the pull off cap!

[keg at the Porterhouse, Covent Garden] Standard Irish-style nitrod red ale thick, dark red appearance, hefty creamy white head. Served very cold and has tart dark flavours with almost no aroma. As it warms the hop bitterness comes out and some more developed malt character with it [28032010]

The aroma is pretty good but not exactly like most red ales ( not that that is a bad thing). There is plenty of grassy, hay like hops, a bit of yeast, and honey. The taste is like the aroma with malt of front and hop bitterness at the back end. The palate is thin for the style but smooth from carbonation. Overall a good beer but thats about it.

Had this one at the Porterhouse in Temple Street A thick, creamy head, really delicious! A floral dominated aroma with a well-balanced bitternes to it. Good use of the hops. The aftertast last for a long while, and I could taste it a few minuttes after I was done. Not a bad beer at all, just not exceptional.

brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a burnt orange/amber color with an off-white head. S: Sweet and slightly toasty malts with a bit of caramel. The hops are nearly absent from the nose. T: Nothing really stands out in this beer. Slightly sweet with caramel notes and a bit of toasted bread/malt. Very light earthy hops. M: The mouthfeel is similarly unassuming. Medium in body and carbonation. D: Not at all bad, but theres nothing here that makes me want to drink this beer again. Its fairly bland and uninteresting. Im not trying to be a "typical American" here and need some monster ABV, but some nice flavor would be a good start.

On tap at Porterhouse in Dublin, Ireland. Surprised this one isnt rated a bit higher, to be honest. I thought that outside of the porters/stouts, this one was the best I tried. A bit of caramel/toffee sweetness but a nice hop backbone. One of the better reds I got to taste on my trip.

Malty barley nose. Amber color, medium head, good lacing. Tart malt and full of flavor. Its not exotic, but it isnt supposed to be. What it is is a well crafted and made irish red.

Pours clear amber color with off white head. Aromas of caramel and biscuit malts with some grassy hops. Caramel malt and iced tea flavors with some hop bitterness.
